Dennis Quaid has been a Hollywood leading man for decades, fronts a band called The Sharks, and now stars in a new scripted musical podcast called Bear and a Banjo.

What We Discuss with Dennis Quaid:

  • Whether or not getting rejected for a coveted job in Hollywood ever gets easier -- even when you've been getting cast for decades.
  • Why Dennis considers fear his greatest motivator -- and what this indicates to him when he feels it upon being offered a role.
  • The hardest place to get respect, the greatest things our kids teach us, and where dad jokes go to die.
  • Listening versus improvising, and how Dennis brings his characters to life without strictly memorizing his lines before arriving on set.
  • Accents, biographical misinformation, and how learning to play a real-life astronaut led to Dennis learning how to fly real-life planes.
  • And much more...
